In this refreshing and engaging book, Russell Watkins proves that 'lean' need not be a dull, dry topic. Adventures in Leanland weaves his global experiences into stories, examples and advice to challenge and inform. Russell's highly readable style traces a path through destinations as diverse as Mumbai and Mexico to give an honest evaluation of what you and your business must become to survive these turbulent times. Discover the critical lessons that 'lean' can learn from professional cycling, sniper training, baseball fights, nuclear accidents and panda breeding. If you earn your living in Operations (in a factory, service centre, office or hospital) Adventures in Leanland is a must read. CEOs, MDs, Supervisors, and Consultants alike stand to benefit from the insight and hard practical advice packed within these covers. A career that has turned full circle, from being trained by merciless Japanese Toyota Master Engineers to consulting to Toyota group companies, makes Russell's a voice worth listening to.
